But that's an impression, not Brando.

I'm sure the guy doing the impression was much easier to work with than the real Brando at the time though.

This sums up Brando in the late 1970's:

We are true masters of diversion.

If we had been in France during WW2, we would have ended up baffling the advancing Nazi war machine with unrelated stories and questions about how their incessant use of natural resources to feed their nationalistic agression was resulting in the severe lack of pencils in the world. Then, if they still insisted on advancing, we would have pulled out the secret weapon: a well timed "methinks" followed with a deafening Donna screech.

C'mon...the choice is obvious! She's as aligned with Petain as a molded slice of brie; unlike him, she never would've been the savior of Verdun (at least he did some things right--that's the trouble with living long enough--Churchill redeemed himself [like all good PMs?] whereas Petain ended up in the shit house).

Of course, now that we really have found ourselves smack dab in WWII trivia, we might as move the whole scene to Rick's, so if I get to play Rick (please! Miss D as Ilsa?), you can be Claude Rains and Dire gets to be oily little Lorre...

I can tie this back to the dead! I once watched Casablanca at the US Ambassador's home in Casablanca (spent summer of '86 "studying" in Marrakech at first US-Moroccan exchange program; saw James Brown and Jimmy Cliff in the Casablanca stadium that summer)and at the party before hand the student band played Dead cover tunes (I especially recall Bertha).

Funny thing was that during the world cup that year, we could see French games in color on big tv at compound in Marrakech but when Moroccan game started the "fuse" blew and had to watch on small B&W. (Beckenbauer's final year for Germany?) Damn colonialists.

Oh, now wait--it's not that bad...it started with Terrapin, went to the old Terrapin Bashing Thread (linked above), then, included diversions to skies, which led us to France, and WWII had been mentioned, so this got us to Vichy, and how could you not think of Casablanca, the movie, in that regard...then, we boys (yes, juvenile we be), with our penchant for role playing, of course inserted ourselves in the movie, and then amazingly, BD linked it back to the DEAD with his experiences in North Africa.

DEAD? Well, okay...lacking just a bit...

Why do you guys continue to hate on skies so much even though she is long gone ?
Your misogyny really shines through these posts, despite Guillaume Tell's creepy doggy-style 'leg shagging' of Miss Divine.

One thing about skies though, she certainly had the measure of you bunch of eejits:
Guillaume Tell, vous pissez bleu.

Oh and by the way, terrapins and turtles are not the same thing.

I suppose you just can't help it though can you Dire-ear ?

Of course, it is your right to have these bizarre, sick and pervy sexual fantasies, but don't involve me in them.

You really are one very sad and fecked-up boy. No wonder you have a drink problem. You should call a doctor to investigate your head.

Come think of it, what you are doing here is exactly what Tito does: publicly involving people in his sicko, pervy fantasies. No wonder he likes to pick on you. Hang on, maybe you actually * are * Tito.

Seriously, all flaming aside: While you think you are somehow showing that you can assert yourself in a macho fashion and impress your peers, what you are actually doing is demonstrating you own inadequacies and fears about your own sexuality. I feel very sorry for you.

Au revoir.
